Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay

I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:

Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.

I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.

The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’

Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.

Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them. 

I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts. 

Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.

I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.

Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “doulos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (doulos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.

Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.

Matthew 8:5-13

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.

In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.

Despicable.

I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off.

September is here, and it’s time to say goodbye to beautiful summer and hello to short plaid skirts, rulers, lines, and sexy teachers. That’s right, it’s BACK TO SCHOOL night, where we flog our fetish for academia. 

RSVP on Facebook or Fetlife

Pangæa is a play party and queer cabaret at Sanctuary Studios LAX, LA’s largest commercial dungeon. With over 7000 square feet of play space and nine fully furnished rooms, this is not a venue you’ll soon forget!

Join us for a stage show hosted by HP Loveshaft; featuring drag, burlesque, and kink acts by Jack Emoff, Knox Wilder, Miss Harlow Harlot, Lance Ass, Vilan E. Dangerpuss, Grace Bones, Walking Contradiction, Steelin’ Britches, Neil N. Begfort, Quinton Helix, and others! 

Performances begin at 11:00 pm, or whenever we damn well please. 

We don’t get paid for all of the hard work we put into this show, and while having you as an audience is its own reward, your tips help us afford improvements to both quality and quantity of our props and costumes. Please TIP the performers! ♥

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You’re the party — dress to impress! Don on your schoolgirl skirt, put on your professor’s blazer, and tape up your glasses. Fetish attire encouraged but not mandatory, all expressions of gender welcome.

Enjoy our refreshment table! It features home-made snacks and dips, fresh fruits and veggies, and a variety of vegan & gluten-free options. Perfect for boosting that blood sugar after an intense scene!

We also have stocked bar, and play is encouraged in any one of our seven gorgeous, fully furnished rooms.

18 and over, bar for 21 and over. Must have ID.

$10 before 10:30 pm, $15 after.

At 10:00 pm, there will be a Consent Workshop in one of the play rooms — this is an hour-long event, part class, part discussion space. We highly recommend all newcomers attend at least one! Each class will cover the basics of communication within a kinky space, with a special focus on a certain type of play or activity. Don’t miss it! 

This is a *Safe Space* — please respect pronouns, identities, and boundaries. Do not touch anyone without their permission, and don’t engage in any kinky activities or initiate D/s interactions with anyone without their explicit consent. 

When in doubt, ASK! Direct, honest, and respectful communication is key. Dungeon Monitors and cast members will also be happy to answer any questions you may have on rules & dungeon etiquette. 

Pangæa is a pansexual play party, aiming to explore the intersection of kink and queerness in its many forms. Our goal is to create a queer space within the kink community, and to do so successfully, we need your help. Please spread the word as best you can. Tell you friends about this event, like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter @clubPangaea, and join our Fetlife group.
